Did you know that February is Black History Month? Richmond Public Library, the City of Richmond and Mary Wilson, long-time organizer of Black History Month events, are ready to welcome the community at a month-long celebration of the legacy of Black Canadians past and present. This year’s theme recognizes the contributions of Black Canadians to arts, music, culture and sports, all made while breaking down historical barriers./p>
There’s something for everyone at the library this February. We’re offering free, drop-in programs that explore some of the unique impacts that Black Canadians have had.
